Momentum is building for a $14 minimum wage! Just yesterday, the Campaign to Raise the Minimum Wage received the first vote of support for a $14 minimum wage from a sitting MPP! Read about MPP Cheri DiNovo’s support for $14 here!
In November, we will be taking our message directly to our elected Members of Provincial Parliament. We will be letting them know that raising the minimum wage is good for our economy and good for our communities.
Can you be part of this growing movement for fair wages? Your support this month is crucial as we come to a critical moment of our campaign for a $14 minimum wage. With the Minimum Wage Advisory Panel expected to release their report by the end of the year, now is the time to turn up the heat! Join or plan an action in your community. Find out more here
